The Pergola

The pergola in our garden. When we moved into our house we were surrounded by small grape vines. We decided to keep some of the vines, so we constructed a pergola and through the year it grew into a beautiful green tunnel. We have also incorporated fragrant climbing rose and passion flowers which add colour.

Tommy’s Garden Bench

 

This is one of Tommy’s favourite spots in the garden.

Many years ago we built a hill at the far end of the garden.  For a long time it was just a hill and then we decided to plant a mulberry tree which has now grown into a beautiful tree with the branches giving a canapy of cool shade and distant views across the vineyard, and hills beyond.  So of course seating was needed and here it is, the round bench.
